Recommencement of Works to the Dinant Link Road Roundabout   

Following further consultation with Hertfordshire County Council, road works will recommence on Tuesday 26th May, in preparation for re-surfacing to be undertaken.

The works consist of minor amendments to some of the kerblines. To maintain the integrity of the carriageway it is necessary to provide a new surface course which can only be safely undertaken using a road closure, as detailed below.

-Full closure of the eastbound carriageway only on Saturday 6th June and Sunday 7th June

-Full closure of the westbound carriageway only on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th June

As before, temporary traffic management will be in place from Tuesday 26th May.

Hertfordshire County Council will determine the period of the closure and will notify the public in the usual way.

On both weekends with the closures, the works to repair and relay the surface will take place during the day and one carriageway will remain open. On Sunday evening the traffic management will be removed and the road will be fully open by early Monday morning.

We thank the community for their patience and understanding and will endeavour to complete the works as swiftly as possible.

March 2020

The contractor has taken the decision to postpone the planned works on the Dinant Link Road Roundabout until further notice.

Dinant Link Road Roundabout

Hertfordshire County Council have requested that Lands Improvement undertake some re-surfacing work on the Dinant Link Road Roundabout.

The dates for the re-surfacing are as follows;

– Temporary traffic lights on the Dinant Link Road from the 23rd March through to the 17th April. There will be a single carriageway open in both directions which will allow traffic to pass in both directions. This is to permit kerb re-alignment.

– Closure of the eastbound carriageway only on Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th April to allow for the resurfacing.

– Closure of the westbound carriageway only on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th April.

It is important to note that on both weekends of the closures, the works to repair and relay the surface will take place during the day and one carriageway will remain open. Hertfordshire County Council will determine the period of the closure and will notify the public in the usual way.

We apologise for any inconvenience and will endeavour to complete the works as quickly as possible.
